Banana Smoothies with Honey & Cinnamon

These Banana Smoothies with Honey & Cinnamon are one of my favourite breakfasts!  They’re easy to make and best of all, healthy!

I love breakfast.  In fact before I go to bed I actually get a bit excited knowing breakfast is coming…I’m kinda crazy like that…haha!  But sometimes weekday breakfasts are a little booooring.  So every once in a while I switch things up and have a smoothie.  And I don’t like to share them.  It’s not often I don’t share something I’m eating, but everyone here knows not to ask momma for a sip of her smoothie.

Banana Smoothies with Honey & Cinnamon

Anyway, this smoothie is something I’ve been drinking off and on for over 10 years now. And because I love this smoothie so much I thought I’d share it with you! If anything, you’ve got another idea for breakfast!

Banana Smoothies with Honey & Cinnamon


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup almond milk (any kind you like: chocolate (vanilla, unsweetened))
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp oat bran
  • 1 squeeze of honey
  • couple dashes of cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Put all the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Enjoy!

Tips!

  • I like to keep frozen bananas ready to go in the freezer.  Just peel some bananas, and lay them out on a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet, then freeze them.  Once they are frozen, transfer them over to a ziplock bag for storage.
  • If you are allergic to nuts, just leave out the almond butter, and use soy milk instead of almond milk.
  • For another flavour, use peanut butter instead of almond butter.

Smoothies are so easy, and so versatile…really just put what ever you like in them and enjoy!

Have a delicious day!

    I know that when I sit down to eat ANYTHING I have two kids who want ‘little bites’ and I end up with not much left. Good for portion control I guess, but I feel ya, certain things they have to suffer and it is all mine 🙂

      Great for portion control, lol! Mine hear every wrapper being opened, the pantry door or fridge being opened and run to check out what I’m eating! Crazy kids!
